Defrag Question

Recommended Posts

alrighty, let me start off saying i need some advice if it would do me any good to defrag my hds that are just for storage stuff, music and stuff like that, dvds you know the works but would it help anything if its just being used like that

it would make since to me if you only defragged the hds with the working os installed on it but your help/adivce would be appreaicted :) thanks TMN

btw, havent ever defragged the 3hds that are for storage, been a good 2 years maybe

stuff still moves fast, i couldnt see how it would make it any better, thats what i need to know if it would help anything

If you put it in there and leave it alone ( no modifies, deletes, etc. ) Everything ought to be lined up nicely.  All defrag does mostly is put the ducks in a row.  Someone else may feel differently about it tho.

things can get out of line buy just installing a simple program, it can get out of line even if you don't do anything, because the HD is constantly moving things around, to correct the 100's errors each second. thats why i defrag each month.

just wondering what defrag programs you use, or do you use the built in one from xp ?

im doing my laptop right now as well, and im using the xp one, seems to work the best for me.

HDD defragmentation, at leas monthly for all your drives, Windows will only defrag one at a time, try diskkeeper, litttle expensive but well worth it, thats if youre on commercial software, if go windows way, leave it running overnight

Hi EWO

just think you are right on that one , It is not his main drive, so little or nowt would be gained by defraging it, doubt if his page file is on there either,

warning - Defrag can loose your O/S. WHA ?, yes just gone and done that on my early Sony Vaio notebook just as I had found a buyer ,

so take it apart , bust the case again, :( remove the H/D and reload M.E , F***k all for $30 not a happy bunny me :evil3:

What stirkes me as hillarious (and I mean hella funny) is that 99.9% of the people here will not know what "piles" is.  :evil6:
